The First Dual FDA-Cleared Microneedling Device

FDA-cleared Exceed™ microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure most used for the face but can be used on areas of the body that have stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles, such as the abdomen, legs, chest, or butt. It is a virtually painless procedure that is completed in less than 45 minutes and with no downtime! Microneedling is encouraged to be a 3 – 6 treatment procedure for best results. Treatments are recommended to be done 4 – 6 weeks apart to allow your skin cells to turn over and heal.

What is EXCEED Microneedling?

Exceed is the latest technology that is quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods on the market, including other microneedling pens. Microneedling is used to produce new collagen to the skin to produce smoother, firmer, and evenly toned skin. It also may be used to treat acne scars, wrinkles, and large pores. By combining PRP with microneedling, it will speed up the healing process and stimulate cell turnover to potentially produce even better results. The plasma is the liquid part of your blood that is made up of water and proteins and will help heal your skin faster.

Am I a Candidate?

You may be a candidate for microneedling with Exceed technology if you have any problematic issues on your face that you would like to correct, such as acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, redness, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity.

What is a typical treatment like?

The Exceed provides the most flexibility in settings and ensures over-treatment does not occur. You can adjust the depth of penetration by 0.1mm intervals, making sure you only go as deep as you need to. Most other pens have at most 8 depth settings while the Exceed offers 19 options for depth. Exceed is the only device to utilize a dual-layer membrane in the cartridge to make sure no substances are drawn back into the handpiece. Our membrane is the ONLY one proven to guarantee a 0% chance of cross contamination. Call us or book your appointment online today!

Microneedling FAQ

How much does microneedling cost?
During your consultation, Dr. Conrardy or a member of his experienced team will evaluate your skin and then develop your unique treatment plan. From there, they will go over your costs and what to expect during the procedure. White Pearl Med Spa often offers discounts on treatment packages, so ask about current deals during your consultation.

What exactly is microneedling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a nonsurgical procedure to improve the health of your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that helps keep your skin supple, smooth, and tight. Over time, your natural supply of collagen is depleted and your skin gets less elastic and thin. Microneedling causes tiny wounds on your skin. These micro-injuries cause your skin to increase its collagen production and generate new skin cell growth. Once healed, your complexion is firmer, brighter, and healthier.

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
In the process of microneedling, channels are made that make it easier for treatments to reach the lower layers. That's why microneedling is often combined before other skin treatments, like vitamin-rich serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Microneedling plus PRP is often called the Vampire Facial®. During your consultation, we will explain what treatments would enhance your microneedling and which best fit your skin goals.

How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Usually, patients need 3 – 6 microneedling treatments to achieve their best results. However, how many treatments you require will depend on the condition of your skin and your goals. Microneedling can be safely done every 4 – 6 weeks. During your consultation, Dr. Conrardy can estimate the number of sessions you will want based on your skin and goals. When your skin goals are reached, Dr. Conrardy suggests getting maintenance treatments every six months.

Is microneedling safe for everyone?
In general, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Since the skin injuries created are so small, there are usually no side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be performed on most skin areas, including the arms, face, neck, thighs, chest, and lower legs. Microneedling isn't recommended if you have taken Accutane in the last few months, as well as if you have herpes simplex, an open wound, or an active skin infection. In addition, you might not be able to get microneedling if you're pregnant, nursing, or getting radiation treatments.
